P.S. 122 in Astoria was recognized for earning high scores on the new state standardized tests.

Although P.S. 122 in Astoria was facing big changes a few months ago from the Department of Education, the students showed they can excel beyond the average city scores.

On August 13, Councilmember Peter F. Vallone Jr. celebrated students, teachers and Principal Pamela Sabel for their hard work in earning high scores on the new state standardized tests.

The students scored 71 percent at or above proficient in math and 69.7 percent at or above in English Language Arts (ELA). P.S. 122 accomplished scores close to 40 percent more than both the city and state scores.

Vallone also presented Sabel with a city council citation in recognition of the school’s success.
